Cartoon Saturday

At least 18 people have been killed in the latest mine explosion in China; the last survivor of the sinking of the Titanic is selling off personal mementos to pay her nursing home bills; Mahmoud Ahmedinejad thunders that "no one dares threaten Iran," which prefers to do its own threatening; North Korea has thrown another temper tantrum; and a woman in Boston may have been murdered by a man who responded to her ad on Craigslist for massage services.

At least you have Cartoon Saturday to make you feel better.

This week, pairs of cartoons on related themes...

What happens when some people show up in front of St Peter is a popular subject. I was a little concerned about this one, which was sent to me by one of my co-workers...

But this one looks pretty good to me ...

A pair of riffs on the proliferation of electronic entertainment ...


And finally, two cartoons that are just what the doctor ordered. More or less.


It looks as if it's going to be a gorgeous weekend here in Northern Virginia, and I can already hear my winter-neglected yard whining for attention. Last weekend I put some plant food on the shrubs under the windows...now I can't sleep because I overfed them and they just sit out there and belch all night long.

You can't win.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

the first one is certainly cause for concern. One has to be very careful of blogs, facebook, my space, etc.
